Tips to Improve Your Air Conditioner Efficiency in Anaheim

Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Anaheim, most people will start seriously thinking about not using your air conditioner as much for the foreseeable future. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally impacts everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your air conditioner this year, consider these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably the most forgotten simple fix to help boost the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, exchanging filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees warmer than typical is a very easy way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a handful of degrees warmer can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be home for a while? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home warmer when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: whether it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep cool air from getting out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and figure out if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always looking for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These handful of tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and possibly save a few dollars.
